Bodega Chacra "Cincuenta y Cinco" Pinot Noir - 2021

Item # 26500 750mL

Bodega Chacra is Piero Incisa della Rochetta's personal project in Rio Negro, Argentina (Patagonia). Harvested manually, the wines are fermented in cement vats with minimal intervention before being put into Burgundian oak barrels of which about 20% are new. Fermentation takes place naturally in the barrel over 6 months before being bottled without fining or filtration. Argentina is not known for its Pinot Noirs, but this one is impressive: aromatic, light, elegant, and savory with ripe fruits, herb, and mineral notes.

Staff Pick Notes

"Appetite comes while you eat," says Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, who started his own solo project back in 2004. While Malbec is the most widely planted grape in Argentina, Bodega Chacra in Patagonia focuses on producing a high quality Pinot Noir from old wines planted in the early 1930s. All Chacra wines are 100% certified organic and biodynamic and the Patagonian climate and soil play a huge role of developing the vines. The light and juicy Burgundian-style Pinot Noir offers aromas of sour cherries, strawberries and lavender. It pairs nicely with steak tartare, chorizo, or empanadas with salsa verda.

Ever tried a sparkling Malbec? A Patagonian Pinot Noir? Argentine winemakers have long been in a position to experiment, most often with very tasty results. Many grapes flourish here, but none have been as commercially successful as Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the great undiscovered gems is Torrontés, a fresh, aromatic white variety that is best enjoyed young. The red Bonarda grape is another approachable yet little-known variety that thrives here. If you prefer your red wines spicy,...

Pinot Noir

The Burgundy region of northeastern France is the historic home of the Pinot Noir grape, and is the source of the world’s greatest examples. Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer. Terroir, the concept that wines from a specific region have unique and identifiable traits, is intricately...
